Zusatztext 'Byrne restores the experience of Northern travels to its rightful place at the heart of European Romanticism. The reader is guided with great agility between antiquarian and ethnographic visions! traversing the liminal spaces of the North's own inhabited worlds and natural histories. At long last we have a book that provides a convincing critical analysis of the North in the formation of Britain's cultural identity.' - Michael Bravo! Head of History and Public Policy!
